  I'm passing this along from Eric Melin, who drummed in Ultimate Fakebook:
-----

Elo kiddies-

Nick and Eric from UFB have a new band called Dead Girls Ruin Everything, who have cut some demos and are getting ready to go into the studio to record a full-length album. There is a contest for local Lawrence, KS bands to win some studio time, and this would really help us get this album done quicker and better! So, here is your chance to download the new stuff, and help fund our recording by spending none of you money at all and getting free tunes in the process!

Go here: http://www.lawrence.com/bands/dead_girls_ruin_everything/

Click on "Never Too Late"
Right click on "Play the Mp3," save as...
and you've got 1 of 4 free songs!

while you're at it, check out "The Turnpike," a 1/2 hour TV show featuring funny interviews and rockin' live songs by Dead Girls Ruin Everything. If lots of you download "Never Too Late" and/or other Dead Girls songs, then we'll get 2 days with the fabulous Ed Rose to make our record even better.

Thanks for your time, and we hope this email finds you still rocking.

xo,
Dead Girls Ruin Everything

Need honest listener/fan feedback for seven free mp3s 
  powerpopzen
 
12:07pm 22/01/2004
  The first seven mp3 demos for indie rockpunk/power pop project Bedroom Politics are below for your free download. However, read this explanation first.

This music will more than likely have a lot of appeal for fans of Guided By Voices, Beck, the Kicks, Superdrag, Foo Fighters, Weezer, Ozma, Jimmy Eat World, the Ultimate Fakebook, and similar bands.

So, grab and listen to as many of these songs as you can/want to and tell me what you think - I need feedback to determine for sure which songs are better than others... but keep two things in mind.

Firstly, these are merely DEMOS (not final recordings - don't judge by SOUND quality, rather, the quality of the SONG).

Secondly, some (mostly any of the female) if not all, of the vocals will most likely be redone with a good, solid version of the male voice you will hear.

I want to know if you prefer a song (or songs) to others, all of them, none, etc. But if you do/don't like them, I need to know WHY. That's the most important part. I figured opinions from tons of people I don't know would be less biased.

Right-click and "Save Target As" already. (You probably knew how to do that.)

http://www.bedroompolitics.net/mp3/bdrm_politics-how_much_demo.mp3
http://www.bedroompolitics.net/mp3/bdrm_politics-sad_stop-unlucky_demo.mp3
http://www.bedroompolitics.net/mp3/bdrm_politics-seafood_demo.mp3
http://www.bedroompolitics.net/mp3/bdrm_politics-stressures_demo.mp3
http://www.bedroompolitics.net/mp3/bdrm_politics-the_forgotten_woman_demo.mp3
http://www.bedroompolitics.net/mp3/bdrm_politics-tying_up_loose_ends_demo.mp3

Also, feel free to contact me if you happen to like most or all of those bands (or other catchy and punchy/slightly quirky power pop/indie rock with serious hooks) - especially if you are located in the (Manchester) New Hampshire area.

Take care, everyone, and thanks. This message has indeed been cross-posted in order for me to receive the most blunt, scathing and honest criticisms from mostly complete strangers that I possibly can! Bring it.

The KICKS!

Hi everyone!

I figured this may be a good place to alert fans of good catchy music.

This band, called the Kicks (formerly Ashtray Babyhead).. think Weezer + Superdrag but more rock and less geek - have an amazing new album.

Now, the only reason I mention them is that I was blown away by this album. And the posting below of the fan community devoted to them is not shameless promo, but merely a place for fans to meet - if you happen to like them, stop by and tell us so!

http://www.livejournal.com/community/the_kicks

Check them out, TRUST ME.

I don't think you're going to be disappointed, rather, blown away.

The Kicks are from Little Rock, Arkansas. Prepare to be enlightened, if you're into the incredibly hooky, powerful, fun rock-pop-punkish (power pop!) singalong type stuff. Must be heard to be appreciated. There are links on that community page, but specifically

http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/kicks

to hear 3 songs - "Mir" is the single. Just a little heads-up.. it's good to spread around new music! Hit me up with some too! I love the reccomendations.

(This fuckin album immediately became my favorite album of ALL TIME after I heard it. Enjoy, and good luck getting it out of your CD player if you happen to buy it.)

Peace, rock and take care
Jake

Hey everyone. I'm a huge UFB fan. I've loved them since middle school. They're amazing. I've only been to 2 of their shows. God, I wish they would come to NY again. I don't know how much more patient I can possibly be. Ok..thats all i have to say.

UFB to be on MTV2

  As reported on their web site, Ultimate Fakebook's video for "Inside Me, Inside You" has been accepted for MTV2's 120 Minutes. The airdate is not known yet. It's a good, funny video, which you'll especially enjoy if you've seen the movie Fight Club.

From the Road Update 12/23
Wheeww! Being home from the road has never felt so good. We had such a blast trekkin' across the USA multiple times this year that we just about wore ourselves out. We really want to thank everyone who came and saw us this year on tour. Without you guys we wouldn't exist. Every day on the road is an adventure, and the tour with Nerf Herder and Fairview was no exception. Whether it was rain and snowstorms during a 13 hour drive to Seattle or a wild evening of drunken karoke in NYC, we can definately say all three bands saw some excitement. Honestly we are just glad we made it home in one fairly intact piece this year. So what's next? Well some of you may remember hearing about Bill's Guns 'n' Roses tribute band, Sweet Band O'Mine. If you missed out on the craziness last time, you've got another chance to witness the boys tear it up again at the Bottleneck in Lawrence KS on Jan. 10th. See you there! Well how's 'bout a new UFB CD with 6 brand new songs, 3 killer remixes and the video for "Inside Me, Inside You"? We'll have more info up about it very soon, but keep yer calendar open in late march! Take care everybody, LOVE UFB.

yay! :D

Hey everybody, I never knew there was a UFB community or I would have joined it long ago...

My name's Kristina and I live in Clarkston, MI (45 minutes south of Detroit). I just went to my 3rd UFB show last night, and, as you may have guessed, it ROCKED! I wrote a big long review thing in my livejournal, so check it out :)

I think it's great someone made this community to bring all us UFB-heads together.

First of all, I would like to apologize for being one of the worst maintainers of anything.
I haven't devoted any time to work on things of a UFB nature.

But, I have some good news!
I have scanned schloads of new UFB pics and uploaded them to my website.
Now, when I'm finished with my term paper, all I have to do is crank out the html and the pics will be viewable.
Oh, glorious day!

For right now, here is a link to a pic featuring:
